2. Precautions for breast cancer-related lymphoedema: risk from air travel, ipsilateral arm blood pressure measurements, skin puncture, extreme temperatures, and cellulitis. (PubMed)

Precautions for breast cancer-related lymphoedema: risk from air travel, ipsilateral arm blood pressure measurements, skin puncture, extreme temperatures, and cellulitis. Precautionary recommendations conveyed to survivors of cancer by health-care practitioners to reduce the risk of breast cancer-related lymphoedema are indispensable aspects of clinical care, yet remain unsubstantiated by high-level scientific evidence. By reviewing the literature, we identified 31 original research articles (...) that examined whether lifestyle-associated risk factors (air travel, ipsilateral arm blood pressure measurements, skin puncture, extreme temperatures, and skin infections-eg, cellulitis) increase the risk of breast cancer-related lymphoedema. Among the few studies that lend support to precautionary guidelines, most provide low-level (levels 3-5) or inconclusive evidence of an association between lymphoedema and these risk factors, and only four level 2 studies show a significant association.

3. Encouraging Travellers to take Preventive Measures Against Travel-Related Communicable Diseases: A Rapid Review of the Literature

audiences. 4 Executive Summary What population-level communication interventions will result in health behaviour change among travellers? Context International travel among Canadians is increasing rapidly and, in Peel region, the burden of travel-related communicable diseases is significant. Enhanced surveillance of travel-related hepatitis A, malaria, paratyphoid and typhoid fever cases revealed that only 13% of cases sought pre-travel medical advice. This information complements published research (...) , which confirms the underuse of pre-travel medical clinics. Anecdotal and preliminary data also identify travel as a risk factor for sexually transmitted infections. At least 15 health care sites in Peel region provide travel health services; promoting these services may increase the uptake of preventive measures and reduce travel-related disease. Methods and Search Results A systematic search of the literature yielded six relevant papers and one textbook. Two guidelines and one textbook were

ACOG Committee Opinion No. 746 Summary: Air Travel During Pregnancy. In the absence of obstetric or medical complications, occasional air travel is safe for pregnant women. Pregnant women can fly safely, observing the same precautions for air travel as the general population. Because severe air turbulence cannot be predicted and the subsequent risk for trauma is significant should this occur, pregnant women should be instructed to use their seat belts continuously while seated. Despite a lack (...) of evidence associating lower extremity edema and venous thrombotic events with air travel during pregnancy, certain preventive measures can be used to minimize these risks, including use of support stockings and periodic movement of the lower extremities, avoidance of restrictive clothing, occasional ambulation, and maintenance of adequate hydration. For most air travelers, the risks to the fetus from exposure to cosmic radiation are negligible. However, aircrew or frequent flyers may exceed these limits

Zika Virus Prevention: U.S. Travelers' Knowledge, Risk Perceptions, and Behavioral Intentions-A National Survey. Limited data exist about U.S. travelers' knowledge, risk perceptions, and behaviors related to the Zika virus (ZIKV). Using an internet research panel, in March 2017, we surveyed 1,202 Americans in the continental United States and Puerto Rico who planned to travel to a ZIKV-affected country, state, or U.S. territory in 2017. We compared levels of knowledge and perceived risk of ZIKV (...) of respondents from Puerto Rico. Compared with respondents from at-risk and other states, respondents from Puerto Rico were the most knowledgeable for almost all types of knowledge assessed. Knowledge about post-travel precautions was low across all three regions. Differences in perceived risk and intentions to practice specific prevention behaviors also varied among regions. Significant gaps exist in U.S. travelers' knowledge about how to prevent ZIKV transmission both during and after travel. Input

. In general, we found little information on the topic. For policies and guidelines, we found information related to the installation and use of lasers for hair removal. In each of the jurisdictions examined except for Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador, we found that the use of laser devices for medical purposes is governed by provincial regulations which help ensure workplace safety, and specify precautions for the design and use of laser equipment. These regulations are often used in tandem (...)
